New Mannington Program Helps Schools
Salem, NJ, Nov. 15, 2013 -- Mannington Commercial said it has launched Choices for Good, a pay-what-you-can for flooring program for public schools across America.
"Too many times, we saw public schools in these communities, and many others, struggling with budget shortages," said Jack Ganley, President of Mannington Commercial.
"Without the funds necessary to perform much-needed renovations, facilities suffered, and so did teachers and students who learn in them. Inspired by initiatives we admire in other industries, we decided to do something about it."
Beginning in the fall, Mannington set aside dedicated flooring inventory that would be available to K-12 school systems, at a “pay what you can” price – including carpet, resilient sheet, VCT and rubber tile goods that meet their performance and design needs.
As a Choices for Good customer, schools can pay more or less than the suggested price, which is substantially discounted from retail and wholesale pricing.
To sustain the program for other communities in the future, the company asks that schools pay the suggested price, if they are able. To qualify, all sales must be direct to the school district, business, or non-profit.
